Columbia, SC – Despite a push from the Gamecocks in the second half to make it a one-possession game, No. 1 Tennessee pulled away in the second half for a 92-70 victory Tuesday at South Carolina’s Colonial Life Arena.
The victory marked the 15th consecutive win for the Vols (19-1, 7-0 SEC), matching a program record that has stood for more than a century (February 20th, 1915, until January 20th, 1917).
Tennessee’s defense stepped up big in the final nine minutes of the game, holding the Gamecocks (10-10, 5-2 SEC) to just seven points and 1-of-10 shooting from the field down the stretch.
